End ot Time

End of Time

Tick tock
Mankind invented the twenty-four hour clock
First sun dials measured the almighty sun
Timex then made telling time fashionably fun

All this fuss to quantify the beginning and the end
It took moments for spirituality into darkness to descend
Shake your wrist free of those two cunning arms
They will never counsel you of the end of time alarms

Prophets spoke of a mystical time
Daniel measured time, “for a time, two times and half of time”
There was no number that marked the date
Rather God’s moment to test humanity’s fate

You will not find time between dusk and dawn
It only exists until we are unfortunately gone
If you wish to gauge the instance we call life
Run your fingers along the dull side of the metal knife

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
